aUnderstanding the Ones that Really Matter
Do you know your co-workers better than you know your own kids?
Provocative question, I know. Maybe a little click-baitish, but hear me out. In the corporate world, we have all kinds of personality assessments to help us work and communicate better with our co-workers. We know each other’s strengths, weaknesses, favorites, and preferences. We know who to give details to and who can only handle high level overviews. We know who might be resistant to change and who will get with the program quickly.
We process and synthesize the many insights we gain from work. We use what we learn to form deep connections with professional colleagues, team members and other employees.
Wouldn’t it be great to have that same type of deep information to help you understand how to relate to your children? Can you imagine a greater peace within your family if you could understand how each person thinks and processes information? Wouldn’t it be an emotional relief to know what makes your son or daughter tick? Could you see homework being made easier if you could understand how they prefer to learn and process information?
Setting Up Your Child for Success
Well there is hope. You can understand your children better with the Student Success Report.
The Student Success Report, best utilized for children aged 8 to 13, is an excellent tool based on the DISC personality assessment and is useful for making deeper connections with your children. The report is around 15-pages long and it has three sections:
My wife and I found the Student Success Report to be extremely helpful in understanding our two young children. Not only did it help us understand their unique personality, but it helps us understand how our own personalities amplify conflict and make our relationships with our children productive at times and unproductive at others.
Since we had them complete the personality assessment, we’ve been equipped to have better relationships as a family. We’ve also been intentional in reminding one another how our children process information, why they do the things they do, and how to best help them through difficult situations. It has truly made relationships in our house feel a lot smoother.
We also shared the report with their teachers at the beginning of the year. One of them said “This is terrific insight and shows how we can support him. Do you mind if I share this Student Success Report with all of his teachers? I am sure they would all want to know this information about how to best work with him this coming year.”
Of course, we said “Yes!”
